Angelo, it seems, gets it from the landlord oí the inn where the lexicographer put up. Johnson gets off the pony, and tlie poor animal, relieved from the giant, smelt his way into the stable.

He sat on a hob near a little boy who was very busy attending the meat, and Johnson did not like the appearance of his head ; when he shifted the basting ladle from one hand the other was not idle, and the Doctor thought at the time he saw some- thing fall on the meat, upon which he determined to eat no more mutton on that day. The dinner was announced. Boswcll exclaimed.* "My dear Doct...
